Should I buy my friend the We-Vibe Tango or Salsa or the JeJoue MiMi?

Should I buy my friend the We-Vibe Tango or Salsa or the JeJoue MiMi?

Philia Philia
I have the Tango AND the Salsa by We-Vibe and I love them both. But, being greedy, I also covet the Mimi, which I haven't checked out in person yet, though I've read all the reviews. A friend of mine, recently single and woefully under-sex-toyed, expressed interest in my Salsa, and I want to get her a gift. So my question is, should I go ahead and get her the Salsa, or the Tango (which I didn't show her) -- that is, what to me are known quantities, and truly fabulous vibrators, but possibly not as amazing as the MiMi -- or should I get her the MiMi, which I've only heard fabulous things about (and, covet!)?

(If it's useful, my friend was like "oooh, cool" in response to me showing her the Lelo Siri, but upgraded to "where can I order one of these?" in response to the Salsa.)

Please answer as appropriate from questions 1-4 (what you have direct experience of) and then choose one of the options from questions 5-7.

Thanks for your advice!!

I'm just starting the voting to get it going! My elaboration of the "depends/other" issue is in the question.

It depends. I was actually asking myself this same question.

I *almost* got a friend the MiMi - but then at the last second I remembered that said friend has pretty long nails and might have more trouble with the buttons than I do.

MiMi is more ergonomic, but the Tango/Salsa buttons are easier to push.

I'm still not entirely sure what I'll do. I like the MiMi the best, personally, and I *think* the buttons will be alright for my friend...

I find that the Zini Seed works excellently to push the buttons on MiMi. I love my Tango, more so than MiMi. It is so convenient and feels so awesome. I would get her either the Tango or the Salsa.

I don't own any of these, but looking at the product pages it seems like the question comes down to if she may be interested in insertion or not. If so, I think the Tango looks a bit more fun than the Salsa, but if not, the Mimi could be fun. I think she'll probably be thrilled either way!

Chirple -- I'm so glad I'm not the only one in this quandary! They both seem like the awesome-est, and that's what I want to get my friend.

Tuesday -- So I should get her the Seed to push the MiMi? Or perhaps some other, less expensive button-pushing aide? Like the other day I got some stuffing for a stuffed animal I was knitting, and the stuffing came with a stuffer and I was like "hey... wait a minute ... isn't this a chopstick??" (It was.) A chopstick might work, or perhaps there's something else they could repurpose for that ... purpose.
Or just skip it and get the Tango/Salsa? I think she likes the black so I'm leaning toward the Salsa.

I think many people like Mimi because the vibration is deep and strong for such a small vibrator. From reading reviews, tango also have very strong and deep vibrator. Tango seems to be easier to use than Mimi, but Mimi is made of silicone. So ultimately it's your pick.

Ha ha. The Seed would be a really expensive button pusher. It's too weak and buzzy for me. I use it just as part of my attempts to try to get used to weaker vibrators. It's part of my desensitization program. But I can't recommend it. It's sad that I've been more successful with it pushing MiMi's buttons than as a vibrator.

Definitely get Tango or Salsa.

I got my friend a Salsa for Christmas and she messaged me that night to tell me how much she loved it

Based on your friend's reaction, I would give her the Salsa. However, these are all rumbly vibes, so it may or may not work for her. Some people like to rumble and others like to buzz. You could always get her a cheaper more buzzy type vibe first to see if she likes that.

I dont think you can make a bad choice here. I myself want to try the Salsa. I think the Tango is stronger than the Mimi, but we (the Tango and I)have had a few frustrating encounters so I would lean a little more toward Mimi. But if she expressed an interest in the Salsa that might be the most logical choice. Which ever one you get I'm sure she will be thrilled!

I'm biased in favor of the Salsa, it being the only one of these I own.

I love the Salsa, and if your friend was that excited about it, that's the one I would get her.

I own and ADORE my Mimi. A great investment. If you don't get Mimi i've heard good things about the Wi-vibe Salsa.

Get her a gift card and point her in the direction of the ones you recommend.
